    Pros

    Great recruiters and sales people. Great pay and I'm never on the bench for very long. I've developed great relationships over the years with their recruiters and they really try to match my requirements with opportunities rather than just submitting me for anything.

    Cons

    Their insurance is ridiculously expensive. Purchasing a gold plan on my own cost less than half the amount they are charging for bronze.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the salary

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to move up. They treat their employees well and recgnize hardwork.

    Cons

    Could use not HR involvement within their office environment. Very money- status based.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with your recruiters when going over sourcing and what exactly you are looking for.

    Pros

    Decent salary, good office culture and work- life balance. Company core values are good and I feel employee friendly.

    Cons

    Have an image of HR consultancy which hurts core technical employees some times. Don't see much of recreation programs for employees

    Advice to Management

    More focus needed on improving employee skills by arranging more training, etc.

    Pros

    The professionalism, attention to detail, and follow-thru for TEKsystems account managers and recruiters are unrivaled. Their work ethics are phenomenal and employees always ready to help the job-seekers. The career paths available are diverse, and many employees becoming "lifers."

    Cons

    Base-pay is slightly lower than average by industry standards. For an IT company they were a bit slow to incorporate better tools for the recruiters & account managers.

    Advice to Management

    Prevent corporate poaching of the recruiters/managers by raising compensation.

    Pros

    My personal representative at TekSystems met me monthly for lunch to touch base and learn how everything was going and answer the questions the onsite wasn't able to.

    Cons

    The onsite consultant representative was swapped out too many times and it was hard to know who to speak to when I had questions. Too many forms to fill out at the initial hire, I was concerned given this wasn't a position requiring security clearances and some of the forms were going to dive pretty deep into my background.

    Pros

    They really care about their employees and spent a LOT of time on training and development. They will take you out to lunch, and much of your expenses are reimbursed

    Cons

    grueling, sitting at a desk most of the day during the first year or two as a technical recruiter

    Advice to Management

    Allow beginning recruiters more outside of the office opportunities

    Pros

    Salary is fine. I complained about the lack of a yearly review and got a raise after a year. They leave you alone and respond to all HR issues quickly. Benefits are adequate

    Cons

    Plant you and almost forget you I only got holiday pay because i stood my ground. Most other don't get it because they didn't know. No vacation pay or PTO. No real benefits like gym or cell phone coverage.

    Advice to Management

    They just don't get that in every company contractors feel like hired hands or second class citizens. If we were taken care of by Tek, then we wouldn't have that much to complain about..

    Pros

    Recruiter was in touch with me regularly, providing feedback from client. Recruiter offered to treat me to lunch every month or so! Client account manager also periodically checked in with me. Communications were good. Was laid off after three months at client organization due to cost-cutting. TEKsystems did what they could do find me more work, but couldn't... But I would work for them again.

    Cons

    Tough job market meant TEKsystems couldn't offer me a new opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing particularly noted.

    Pros

    There is a good variety of career opportunities available at TEKsystems. They provide online training on many different subjects which enhances career advancement. The staff is very professional, easy to get along with and works hard for their clients. Benefits are provided, including 401k, medical, LTD, STD and life insurance. The staff stays in touch with employees on a weekly basis via email, chat and phone calls.

    Cons

    Paid holidays must be negotiated when signing the contract. In addition, there is no paid sick leave as the positions are contract placements. The medical, LTD, STD and life insurance benefits that are provided are sub-standard and expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the benefit structure to draw more talent into the pool. Otherwise, continue providing the excellent services that are available today.
